The ‘320° Licht’ installation of Urbanscreen uses the cathedral-like beauty of the Gasometer as the starting point for a fascinating game with shapes and light.
Within a radius of 320 degrees graphic patterns grow and change on the 100-metre high inside wall of the Gasometer.
The observer experiences the interplay between real and virtual space, in which the Gasometer seems to dissolve into its own, filigree structures and yet finally always reverts to its clear shape. ’320° Licht’ has been achieved with kind project support from Epson Germany.
With approx 20,000 square meters of area played upon, the installation is among the world’s largest and technically most sophisticated interior projections - interconnecting 21 powerful projectors to one projection screen.
Spending his Summers at the French Riviera, Pablo Picasso found that working with clay was a relaxing summer respite from the more strenuous demands of painting. Full of Joie de vivre, his ceramic explorations have a whimsy and sense of freedom that is unmatched by his paintings and works in other media.
As some of his creations are up for auction this May, we took a closer look the market for Picasso’s ceramics.
“I make no distinction between poetry and painting.” -Joan Miro
